As 3S enters it second year of operations, we're launching our inaugural annual giving campaign, 100 x $1,000. We're looking for 100 people to donate $1,000 which will help 3S build a strong foundation that will carry us into the future.

Your donation helps support our daily operations and the designation of an accessible, exciting and new gathering space for our community to enjoy. We are off to a great start, but we believe the best is yet to come and support from our community is critical to our success.

Since opening in March 2015, 3S has:

  • Held over 200 performances from national, international and local artists, musicians and performers
  • Hosted over 70 local artists, either as a solo act or as support for a national touring band
  • Displayed 5 exhibits in the gallery featuring both local and national artists
  • Served over 30,000 people in our performance space, gallery, and restaurant
  • Attracted over 300 members
  • Partnered with over 30 other non-profit organizations to help foster a better community
  • Hosted over 25 community and cultural events, ranging from the Seacoast Leadership graduation ceremony to a City of Portsmouth Master Planning meeting to an Art-Speak forum on public art

But we are just beginning. With your support, we want to take 3S to the next level by expanding our unique programming to appeal to a broader segment of the community. We plan to expand our membership and donor base to support our creative efforts, introduce more people to the 3S experience in each of our spaces, strengthen our community partnerships with other local nonprofits and civic organizations, increase the number and breadth of community and cultural events, and so much more. We need your help to ensure 3S has a longtime home here in Portsmouth, NH.

Donations can be made online by clicking the blue box below or mailing a check. Checks can be mailed to:

We hope you will consider helping us to continue pursuing a space where creation happens and where the arts are explored from all sides. Your donation will truly make a difference in establishing 3S as a vibrant hub for the creative community and beyond.
